Our respected colleague and friend, Dr. Julius C. Allen, passed away on Thursday, February 10, 2005. Known to his friends and family as "Julie," Dr. Allen was an internationally-recognized investigator in cardiovascular science and an early contributor to the biochemistry of the Na,K-pump. His work was inevitably multi-disciplinary, with contributions to biochemistry, physiology, and pharmacology. He helped develop and later directed the Graduate Program for Cardiovascular Sciences at Baylor College of Medicine. Beyond his science, Dr. Allen was a strong advocate of progressive social and political reform, as well as a passionate sports enthusiast. With his sense of humor, it was impossible not to have a good time when he was around. His friendship, wise advice, and experience will be sorely missed.
